Hypothetical, if we lose THJ, GR3, AND Mitch this year what do we do? Blitzkrieg last minute scholarship offers?
I would first like to note that this will not happen. I think we have a better chance of keeping all four than losing all four. But given it's a hypothetical:
I doubt we give scholly's to kids who the coaches don't think are deserving. At that point, we'd have to treat it somewhat as a rebuilding year (similar to Kentucky this year) and wait for more talent to come in. We would probably expand our 2014 class by a kid or two. But who knows, maybe our coaches have their eyes on a recruit or two as they did with Albrecht last year.
Whats the latest on Austin Hatch? Is he trying to get back on the court?
Just saw that Hatch has reclassified to the class of 2014.
He did that quite a while back.
Don't know if this was ever posted anywhere on the board, but I know the ones with Derrick Green and Dymonte Thomas were.
Get 2 The Game featuring Zak Irvin, Michigan-bound Class of 2013 shooting guard from Hamilton Southeastern High School in Fishers, Indiana. Coaching makes good athletes better. It can do the same for teen drivers. Visit http://www.teensafedriver.com/ to learn more.
Thanks for posting this.
I strongly doubt he stays long enough to earn his degree. Although I love how adamant his family is about it. I wonder how his mom would feel if he had one more year to earn his degree vs. leaving at that time and signing a multi-million dollar contract.
Zak Irvin wins Indiana's Mr. Basketball for 2013!
We all knew it was coming
Irvin will join four-star point guard Derrick Walton and four-star power forward Mark Donnal as a freshman at Michigan next season.
I obviously missed this post haha
Sounds like Alford has hired the head coach of Park Tudor HS in Indianapolis to join his staff at UCLA.
Fantastic. Knowing Indiana basketball politics Zak must be a real stud to win this award over IU signees.
Ok clue me in. I know nothing about Park Tudor HS or their coach.
Well, if he starts having sudden interest in playing on the west coast then we will know the reason why. Alford can't find collegiate assistants?
That hire was a strikeout from the start.
Private school for kids whose parents are loaded. Some good basketball talent ends up going there (but it's hardly ever from nearby).

Reminds me a little bit of McGary with his aggressiveness around the rim.
Go Blue & Gig Em'!
I dont follow bball recruiting at all, but are we only taking 3 for 2013? Are we in on anyone else, and could the class end up at 4 or 5? I guess that would all depend on who goes to the NBA next year right?
The 2013 class (Irvin/Walton/Donnal) is done. We're not even in contact with anymore 2013 kids.
We would be really short on scholarship players if Hardaway, Burke, McGary and GRIII all leave. By my count with the incoming 3 freshman that would still leave us with only 9 scholarship players. I know it's probably not going to happen that McGary and GRIII go but if that happens I wouldn't be shocked to see Coach B go after someone late like he did with Spike and Levert last year.
